    Pros

    It's fun, most of the time. You get a lot of knowledge working with the general public.

    Cons

    Sometimes your availability get misinterpreted and you get scheduled out of it. But with good management this shouldn't happen.

    Pros

    Fun coworkers and managers. Decent food with 50% employee discount. Managers worked with schedule and always gave me my requested time off. A lot of positivity and encouragement and laughs. Simple, comfortable uniform (black polo and jeans). Cried on my last day when I had to move away for school. Learned a lot!

    Cons

    Clientele are not the best, which means tips are not the best. But people can surprise you. Averaged about $100 a night in tips plus minimum wage. Chili's can attract those high school youths who have no clue about how to tip.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on with the positive reinforcement

    Pros

    Chilis is a great place to work! It's a fun atmosphere. I loved my managers and co-workers. They were really good about giving days off if requested.

    Cons

    The tips were so so. Averaged about $75 a night.... Some more, some less. It could be the clientele in the area I live though.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were fun & acted like a big family.

    Cons

    Customers -- The customers at the store I worked in were some of the worst customers I've ever dealt with.
    Management -- At the store I worked in, the GM was very un-confrontational. He would not deal with issues head on, and would avoid problems all together.

    Pros

    Great place to make good money. Very stressful work environment if you were it wouldn't look at these locations. Management turnover is high at my location. Consistency is usually an issue.

    Cons

    No consistency, high stress, dealing with hungry people.

    Advice to Management

    Management is usually overwhelmed but tries very hard.
